Republicans Eating Their Own: Gingrich v. Romney

Is there anything more pleasing than to watch the wacky Republican Presidential candidates publicly expose each others’ fatal flaws and thereby provide President Obama with a GOP-approved line of attack in the 2012 general election? This week’s episode of “Republicans Eating Their Own” features Newt Gingrich v. Mitt Romney.

During the weeks leading up to the New Hampshire primary, Newt  “3 Wives” Gingrich was under constant attack from both Mitt “Flip-Flop” Romney and Ron “Racist” Paul. Romney did most of the heavy lifting (and spending) by airing countless hours of anti-Gingrich negative advertising. Gingrich appeared defenseless at the time. In a calculated move, he chose not to unload on Romney until the South Carolina (winner take all) primary in which he had a better chance of beating Romney.

Gingrich’s counter-attack has now come. A Gingrich-friendly Super Pac known as Winning Our Future has released a 27 minute long documentary/ad that chronicles the predatory tactics of the venture capital firm known as Bain Capital which Romney once ran. The film/ad titled, “When Mitt Romney Came To Town” reveals how Bain Capital routinely bought American businesses, fired employees, moved jobs overseas, raided employees’ pension funds and then bankrupted those companies all while Bain’s owners (including Mitt Romney) personally pocketed millions of dollars. Romney’s tactics are referred to as “vulture capitalism”. The Gingrich campaign of course, hopes that voters will realize that Romney’s business acumen lies only in the areas of destroying businesses and denying employees their pension funds while shipping jobs overseas. That certainly is not the type of “job creation” that most Americans are looking for.

 (sung to the theme song of “The Brady Bunch”)

Here’s the story of a man named Romney
He was governor of Mass. but made us hurl
Now his story has been told, like no other
Jobs lost in a swirl

Here’s the story of a man who’s shady
He cannot hold one position of his own
Changes his mind just like the weather
Still, he seeks the throne

His convictions are as strong and firm as Jello
What he knew wasn’t much more than a hunch
Just like Newt, he is not very manly
Mitt Romney and his campaign are out to lunch
The Romney Bunch
The Romney Bunch
Yeas they are all so lame, the Romney Bunch
